Suspect arrested for threatening arresting officer 6 years later

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A suspect involved in a shooting was arrested for making a threat to one of the arresting officers six years after the incident.

In January of 2006, Officer Nathan Ellsworth and Officer Greg McDaniel responded to a domestic disturbance call at a home in west Nashville.

While at the scene, the officers noticed Orlando Garrett was in possession of a handgun. When officers asked if it was loaded, he responded that it was and then allegedly shot his brother, Walter Wyatt.

In June of 2006, Garrett was arrested and found guilty of attempted second degree murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Six year later, in September, the Metro Nashville Police Department received a phone call from a man stating he wanted to leave a message for Officer Ellsworth and stated he "did something bad."

He went on to say "Next time he do something bad, somebody going to kill him. Somebody going to kill him."

Detectives traced the number back to Garrett.

On Friday, detectives responded to Garrett's south Nashville residence to serve him a warrant for threatening an officer.

Upon an investigation, Garrett stated to detectives that "Officer Ellsworth messed up" his life.  He also stated "Ellsworth lied on the stand" and said he could not get a job because of the felony conviction.

When detectives questioned him about the phone call, he said he called police because he was "in a drunk and depressed state."

Garrett was arrested and booked into the Metro jail on a $10,000 bond.
